Event description

Description

Are you interested in visiting Silicon Valley? We are on the hunt for 20 tech-savvy youths (18-29) to take on a fully-funded 10 day immersive experience to San Francisco.

At this information session we'll talk about the program, the schedule, and what we are looking for. It's also your chance to hear from some of our alumni about their experiences on the previous missions.

Founded in 2014 by Steve Baxter (Shark Tank, investor), Startup Catalyst takes groups of youths, startups, investors, corporates, and innovation leaders to international startup hotspots including Silicon Valley, Europe, Israel, and Asia with the goal of transforming the startup and innovation landscape in Australia.

Our flagship program is the Youth Mission, where every year we take twenty young (18-29) tech-savvy, high-achieving Australians on a fully-sponsored two-week mission to Silicon Valley. Applications are invited from around Australia, and are selected for their potential to be Australia’s next batch of globally successful tech entrepreneurs. Over the past 3 years we have taken 60 youths on these missions.

During the Mission the participants spend considerable time with tech giants including Facebook, Google, and Apple, plus a range of startups, investors, and accelerator programs, and also participate in a Startup Weekend where they form teams and work alongside local Silicon Valley residents.

The next Youth Mission is scheduled for November 2017. Online applications are currently open, from which shortlisted applicants will be interviewed. We are looking for 20 technically-skilled (software, UI/UX design, mechatronics, robotics, etc) youths (18-29) who have demonstrated leadership potential and an interest in entrepreneurship.

Come along and find out more.
